*Start time: 17:00 – 18:30 Berlin/Warsaw  (18:00 – 19:30 Vilnius/Moscow, 11:00 – 12:30 Washington DC)

The programme Confronting Memories of CSF e.V. invites you to an online discussion on the WWII memorial landscape and memory culture in Europe. The speakers from Belarus, Germany and Poland will reflect on how and why they vary from country to country, and what challenges and political dimensions are at play in shaping memory in these countries and regions.  

The speakers will address the following questions:
  • What is the WWII memorial landscape in Belarus, Germany and Poland? How does it fit into the memory culture in these countries and the region? 
  • How do politicians shape the culture of remembrance?
  • Is the national memorial landscape affected by transnational factors? Has it contributed to the discourse about an emerging European memory culture?
